The Public Square

"Strange, isn't it? Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?" It's a Wonderful Life, 1946

George Bailey can teach us all a lot about life. Every year we dedicate the last program of December to think about what Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart were trying to tell America in the classic film It's a Wonderful Life. So grab your last holiday cup of cheer and join us around the radio this week on The Public Square®.

This week on The Public Square Long Format Program:

"I feel someone must remain in the position of non-alignment, so that he can look objectively at both parties and be the conscience of both—not the servant or master of either." -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

We have one national holiday that honors a pastor. Many people forget that Martin Luther King Jr. was in fact a pastor. This week we get the privilege of interviewing one of our own, Dr. Sterling Glover, about the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King Jr. whom he knew. Tune in to hear some inspiring stories about Dr. King through Dr. Glover's experiences as we honor both of these men and their leadership today on The Public Square®.

This week on The Public Square Long Format Program:

Congress and the President didn't read the Affordable Care Act before passing the over 2,500 page legislation. This law has birthed over 10,000 pages (and counting) of federal administrative code and regulations. The politicians passed a law and handed our health care to unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats who seemingly are making this up as they go.

The ground keeps shifting on Obamacare. Lots of things have changed and a whole lot of unexpected consequences have come up because of this law. We share one story today on the program involving the Little Sisters of the Poor. Is there still hope for a way out of this mess? Tune in today to hear more.
